IOSCO COUNTY- The long-awaited renovation of the Tawas Lighthouse is underway. Mihm Associates started work in February, and the inside of the tower work is complete. This exciting project is expected to be completed later this summer or fall, weather permitting, of course.
Due to the restoration project, and for the safety of patrons, the inside of the lighthouse and tower is not available for tours until later this year. However, the Friends of Tawas Point Lighthouse and State Park and Lighthouse plan to be on-site on the lawn next to the Lighthouse each Tuesday from 12- 4 p.m. from June 6 – August 29. Information will be provided about the new project, and information about our Michigan Historic Site. There will be staff available to answer questions, share Virtual Tower Tour info, distribute The Visitor magazine and more.
